GOLDEN OPEN Gels, Mediums, and Thinner
OPEN Acrylic Gel (Gloss and Matte) has a slightly softer feel than our Regular Gel (Gloss) and the same consistency as OPEN colors. It can be used for glazes and to extend the paints while maintaining working properties of OPEN acrylics.
OPEN Acrylic Medium (Gloss and Matte) has a lower viscosity and is used to extend paint and maintain properties when a more fluid mixture is desired to increase flow.
OPEN Gels and Mediums are compatible with Golden Heavy Body and Fluid Acrylic colors, as well as regular acrylic gels and mediums and will increase open time while altering their consistency.
OPEN Thinner contains no binders and is used to thin the consistency of paint mixes without altering open time, or to maintain and adjust the workability of colors on the palette without the use of water mist and moisturizing palettes.

To tell the story of Krink, the world’s quickest growing art supply line, you need to hear the story of KR: a terrible art student, a semi-successful vandal, and an entrepreneur who learned everything the hard way.
KR grew up in Queens in the ‘80s surrounded by graffiti writers, skaters, punks and B-boys. Graf was a part of the attitude as much as it was the landscape. Everything was very DIY: steal paint, illegal spots, make markers, emphasize your style, experiment with multiple tools and methods. A lot of it was also based in economy (or lack thereof): sharing and stealing were simply a necessary part of the creative process.
In the late ‘80s, graf on trains died and the art spilled out onto the streets and highways. Writers became more mobile and so styles and tools changed accordingly. Homemade markers that had been the norm were too messy to carry and homemade inks faded in the sun. Pilot-brand silver paint markers became the tool of the trade yet in many ways couldn’t meet this new generation of artist’s very specific needs. (Read More)

BISMUTH VANADATE YELLOWThe inorganic pigment has the opacity and lightfastness of a Cadmium color, without the typical UV/moisture sensitivity, making it an ideal yellow for outdoor use.
TRANSPARENT BROWN IRON OXIDEThis color rounds out the lines of browns, as it fills a color space between Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber, but with a cleaner, redder undertone. Imagine a dark valued, reddish Burnt Umber, with a warm, clean, rich, melted chocolate undertone.
PYRROLE RED DARKClean, dark, and rich, this beautiful organic red pigment fills a color space between Cadmium Red Dark and Cadmium Red Medium. It is a non-toxic, higher chroma alternative to Cadmium Red Dark that can be used in outdoor murals without the UV/moisture sensitivities of a Cadmium color.
PERMANENT MAROONThis color has been on our wish list for quite some time since we stopped production of the beloved Naphthamide Maroon, due to the unavailability of the pigment back in 1997. While Naphthamide Maroon was a single pigment color, Permanent Maroon is a blend. This smokey, reddish violet color dries with a sheen that is between glossy and semi-gloss.
CHROMIUM OXIDE GREEN DARKA darker and cooler version of Chromium Oxide Green, with very good opacity. In addition to offering a cool, opaque single pigment color for fine artists, this color is closer than our regular Chromium Oxide Green to what is sometimes referred to as "European Green".
One of the things that adds to acrylic paint’s versatility is the wide range of modifiers or mediums (shop Mediums and Varnishes) available to alter its natural characteristics. Modeling paste and gel medium, for example, thicken acrylic paint for heavy impastos, meaning the paint is thick, and dries with texture and shape; matte or gloss medium make paint transparent, work as a binder for pigment, and are great for creating luminous glazes; retarders and slow dry mediums slow down paint drying time giving the artist much more workable conditions to create the desired effect. What’s more, in addition to standard tube-type heavy body acrylic colors, artist acrylics are also available in the form of fluid acrylics, for airbrush and watercolor-style applications. Acrylics can be deluted in water for similar effect but can lose the integrity of the pigments. At the opposite extreme, some manufacturers now offer heavier-bodied acrylics such as Liquitex Super Heavy Body that allow more textured painting without the addition of modeling paste or gel medium. The choice is yours! Of course, the most common and useful medium for acrylic is ordinary water. It isn’t glamorous or exotic, but for artists just getting familiar with acrylics, it’s usually the best place to begin because it keeps the painting process simple and direct.
Paint Brushes (shop brushes) are an extremely important factor in achieving superior results from acrylic paint. Most brushes used for oil painting are also suitable for acrylics. If the paint is to be diluted and used like watercolor, a sable or synthetic soft hair brush is recommended to ensure smooth, soft strokes. Synthetic sable brushes are a better all-around choice for acrylic painting because they’re more economical, softer and have a lighter touch than natural hair brushes. Synthetic Acrylic Painting Brushes are also easier to clean and will withstand the tough demands of acrylic paint.
Acrylics are an extraordinarily versatile media. They can be used on almost any surface and will dry to be waterproof in only minutes. Use them to create lushly textured impastos or subtle watercolor-like effects. They clean up easily with water and require no toxic or noxious solvents. Colors will not yellow with age.
Available in tubes, jars and bottles, acrylic paints come in two grades, professional and student. Professional paint is more highly pigmented than student, which uses less expensive pigments and extenders so it will fit the student budget.
